Memorial Day Quandary

With Memorial Day upon us the Chicago Open is in full swing with over 520 competing. Talking over the ground level of the Westin North Shore in Wheeling, the tournament features several interesting side events as well as a room for game analysis by the entertaining and informative Grandmaster John Fedorowicz.

The games in progress and results are being beamed to the world at:
Games can be viewed in real-time... and PGN's of completed games can be downloaded. And you don't even have to leave your house during these torrential rains and loud thunderstorms we're experiencing this blustery Sunday morning.

Speaking of leaving the house, the question is whether there will be casual play on Monday at the church? Rick has asked... and I promised to email all to find out what group sentiment is. We may actually have to find an alternate location because I'm not entirely sure if the church will be open. But that might give us a chance to strut our stuff in public. Who knows what other chess folks are out there who didn't know we existed!

I nominate Culvers in Sycamore... with some good sized tables and a friendly atmosphere. Same start time, but maybe we'll cut things short when their dinner rush starts to pick up.

So leave a message here... or drop me an email. And stay safe!

  6. Komen for the Cure presented $2.9 million to 21 organizations in its 19 county area, bringing its total Colorado investment to $28 million. An additional $11 million has gone to national breast cancer research. In 2010 alone, $2.7 million in Denver affiliate funding supported 7,000 screening services and nearly 200 treatment services.

    This is exactly the response they're looking for, and exactly the kind of thinking you should avoid. If these companies are anything, they're marketing geniuses, and they know just the right number to put out there to make you drop everything you're doing to click. Once you do, they lead you through a string of flashy pages, taking little bits of information from you here and there as they go.

    There are more candidates here than there are candidates running for the Democratic presidential nomination (OK, not quite) as the team overhauls this position from last season. Edelman and Harry are the only sure bets. Dorsett's familiarity gives him a leg up on a lot of the new faces.

    But you have to consider two things here. First, his actual dollars and cents value at just $5.5 million AAV this year is incredible. You would be losing a great, cheapish, young player but that only jacks up what you can reasonably demand, even if you are negotiating from a position that isn particularly strong (tags: Cheap Real Yeezys, Discount Jordan Shoes Wholesale, Cheap Yeezys).
